Officials in Colorado have just released James Holmes' mug shot -- showing the "Dark Knight Rises" shooter in an orange jumpsuit ... with a crazed look in his eyes.
The photo was taken Friday afternoon ... just hours after the 24-year-old opened fire in a movie theater ... killing 12 people and injuring 58 more.
Holmes appeared in court Monday morning ... with the same odd look on his face.
Holmes is facing first degree murder charges. Prosecutors said they will consider pursuing the death penalty.
